Water is our lifeline, and ensuring its security is a top priority. Thousands of water facilities, including reservoirs, wells and treatment plants work efficiently, and quietly, but even a small attack could have disastrous effects for a community, or even an entire state.

Author Dan Kroll presents a basic primer of the threats to our water infrastructure and the steps to prevent such an event. Benefits for readers:

  • An understanding of the vulnerabilities in the water supply
  • Countermeasures to prevent and respond to an attack on a water facility
  • Considerations for accidental or naturally occurring water contamination
